June said, “Ward you were a little rough on the Beaver last night.” Ward Cleaver asked, “Are you talking about our son?” June said, “You always like to revert everything to sex, of course I am talking about our son. Beaver is mostly a good boy and sometimes we are required to objurgate him, but we should not do that when his friends are around. The Beaver looks up to you as a bastion of hope, but last night he became crestfallen.” Ward said, “OK June I will try not to be so harsh on him the next time, but I am still trying to derive a succinct and tangible reason for why he stole that garnet stone. I did not raise my boy to be a thief and this act has caused a dissolution between us, as I have become decathect over this.”
June said, “It was a onetime thing, it is not like he is going to become a kleptomaniac. I guess he felt a need for excitement to get some type of thrill, or maybe he wanted to fill some void in his life, but he has promised never to do it again. Socrates says that no one knowingly commits an evil action, evil is turned into good in the mind. Our son is not evil, although he may be a bit possessive, it is not like he goes around lurking in the shadows at midnight looking to torture some stray cat. Is there any possibility of you guys patching things up today? Can you two do something to enhance this situation?” Ward said, “Sure I was actually thinking about taking him out on the grass to throw the ball around a bit, but the last time we did this, I threw one at his head and he forgot to duck. Sometimes I think that the Beaver might have been abducted by an alien, however I have never found any forensic evidence to back this up. June why did you grab your belly? Did you feel the baby move, are you having another quickening?”
